Hague has been involved with the FFA in many ways. He and a partner recently won first place in the state for an agriscience project about semen motility in bulls, and how different storage methods affect artificial insemination and breeding.
Hague said the organization is about much more than farming and ranching. His experience in FFA inspired his desire to attend law school and become an agricultural lawyer.
Wednesday, new officers for the coming year will be announced.
“It’s a bittersweet experience,” said outgoing President Steven Vekony. “It’s been an unforgettable road, and I’ve seen a lot of peoples’ hard work pay off.”
Vekony is a sophomore at OSU, with a double major in animal science and agriculture education. He said he joined FFA somewhat reluctantly at Byng High School. His agriculture teacher convinced him to stick with the program, and Vekony soon realized how much he loved it. Now he plans to become an agriculture teacher and FFA adviser.
“FFA has impacted my life in so many ways,” Vekony said. “I thank God I had the chance to spend a year helping FFA as its president, and I want to continue to help in the future.”
